Protecting pine floors against active dogs

My husband and I renovated and added on to our kitchen about 4 years ago. We had rendom width pine floors (huge mistake)installed,stained and finished with something that was supposed to be very durable since we have 3 rescue dogs. Well the floors are destroyed and the urethane and stain are actually peeling up. I watched a TOH show recently and they used an epoxy product on a farm table to make it more durable. Short of replacing the flooring, I wonder if there is another solution.

Doggie socks?

Not a lot that can be done. Your best bet is a floor grade poly. I prefer OldMasters brand, it dries to a very hard finish. I have had no problems with our wood floors and dogs and cats but it is Oak.
